CATHY LIGGETT, A.T.C., Head Athletic Trainer
Named Fairleigh Dickinson University's Head Athletic Trainer on August 19, 1998, Cathy Liggett took over the training responsibilities for the Knights' 15-sport Division I athletics department after nine years of service as the assistant trainer. In her 11th year within the Knights athletics department, Liggett also chairs the Physical Education/Fitness Department in University College. She also assists the Department of Academic and Student-Athelete Support Services in scheduling seminars, workshops and speakers on various subjects including nutrition, alcohol, tobacco and addictions. Liggett came to FDU in 1990 after graduating from Keene State College in 1988 with a degree in physical education and sports medicine. She served as the assistant athletic trainer for nine years to longtime trainer Paul Grayner, who announced his resignation in August, 1998. Working specifically with the men's soccer and basketball teams, Liggett's commitment to the well-being of FDU's student-athletes is unsurpassed. As proof of this, in the fall of 1999 Liggett expanded the training room to include an in-house rehabilitation station for the increased attention in each student-athlete's rehabilitation from their injuries.
